Poteau Pirates making strides despite loss to Sallisaw Friday night

September 25, 2012

Well, the Poteau Pirates played with Class 4A's sixth-ranked Sallisaw Black Diamonds in Friday night's District 4A-4 opener at Costner Stadium, and were in contention until the final quarter. It seemed like the Black Diamonds came out in the third quarter and made major corrections on the offensive side of the ball. Ben Oberste, the future Tulsa Golden Hurricane, has been highly visible in sports in eastern Oklahoma for the past three years. But without question, he was a lot more dominating with his legs than with his arm. Poteau had no answer for the QB read option.

Just a handful of diamond teams left now

The Poteau Lady Pirates will begin postseason play Thursday in the Class 4A District Tournament, while the other teams will be in regional tournament with the hopes of making it to next weekend's state tournaments.
